30+ Female Celebrities Who Have Aged Gracefully
There are only a few things in life that compare to the horror of aging badly. However, in a world where concerns such as mortgage applications, home loans, and student loans are constantly choking the youth out of us, survival is more a pressing need than maintaining timeless beauty. For celebrities, a loaded bank account that takes care of life’s worries means a little more time to be vain, but staying beautiful comes at a cost. So it is no surprise that even these beauties have remained in the loop about market outlook, stock ideas as well as ETF funds. It’s not a lot of fun, but a full-proof investing strategy is the only way to ensure that your earnings aren’t depleted too quickly in the pursuit of ageless beauty, and these ladies prove that if you take care of your checking account, it will take care of you.
When it comes to being an ageless Hollywood Amazon, 50-year-old Nicole Kidman takes the cake with ease. While there are speculations that she had a little plastic surgery help to stay youthful, the actress credits her looks to keeping out of the sun and eating right. Whether or not we believe her is lost in the haze of her glowing skin – plastic surgery or exercise/diet aside, we wouldn’t have her look any other way.
American actress Jessica Lange is familiar for her TV and theater roles, especially for performances in King Kong and Tootsie – but when she isn’t building up her bank account, she is proving to the world that she would gladly mortgage her comfort for the less privileged by playing a pivotal role in UNICEF as an ambassador. Although the mum of three has had her fair share of divorce law firms as well as a recent breakup from the playwright, Sam Shepherd, she seems to be still holding it down – and sitting pretty while at it.
Only a few people will forget Catherine Bach’s iconic role as the sassy Miss Daisy Duke in The Dukes of Hazzard or her stunning performance in The Young and the Restless.

The still beautiful Brooke Shields has always been quite fortunate. From obtaining a degree in French Literature at Princeton University without worrying about any student loans, to breaking out on the big screen in the ‘80s and ‘90s with exceptional talent, the gorgeous brunette always had the world at her feet – and a bank account to boot.

The lawsuit settlement also meant a payday for her checking account; but even better, her winning also meant no family bonds would be broken either. Go, girl!
Sissy Spacek made her acting debut in the ‘70s, and her role in the film Badlands brought her significant prominence. Unfortunately, tabloid attention and a star-sized bank account often lead to vices, and for Sissy, it meant a few frequent trips to alcohol or inpatient drug rehab centers which were the dividends of her addiction.

DAME DIANA RIGG
Although she is most recently known as Queen of Thorns Olenna Tyrell on the popular show Game of Thrones, Dame Diana Rigg is no Hollywood newbie.

But if you thought it would take a toll on her looks, you would be surprised.
Considered one of TV’s biggest former teen stars of all time, Molly Ringwald gained international repute with her roles on Pretty in Pink and Sixteen Candles. For a famous teen who was likely to get into addiction and DUI troubles, Ringwald managed to stay out of any of that and out of luxury drug rehab or alcohol rehab facilities.

The woman of many talents manages to juggle a career as an actress, model, fitness guru, and activist.

It is a good thing we don’t look like what we’ve been through.
The 48-year-old Catherine Zeta-Jones is undeniably one of the most beautiful women in the world. The actress, however, seems to have hit a pause button on aging and could easily pass for a 30-year-old. To maintain her youthful glow, Zeta-Jones retains her PH balance with a leafy diet and keeps her metabolism up with her workout routine. Her age-defying appearance could also be attributed to her no-alcohol rule.
Ursula Andress is one of the few actresses on our list whose looks are questionable. But considering how much the now 81-year-old’s checking account has amassed during the active years of her career, it is safe to say that Andress may have opted for plastic surgery to pass the time.

After a successful career, the former actress is now enjoying her retirement in the comfort of her earnings and perhaps life insurance plan.

Julie Andrew’s portfolio boasts iconic roles in the most memorable films like Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music, and her stage work is nothing short of impressive, too.
